Classic Car Auctions sale on the 28th and 29th March will feature one of the best selections of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys ever offered by the Warwickshire based auctioneers.
The sale which is being held at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC in Birmingham, is already looking superb with an ever-increasing catalogue of high-quality cars.
“We have never had such a fabulous selection of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. The Silver Clouds are stunning cars and one of them is at No Reserve.” commented Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions Manager.
“These are just four of the cars on offer, we have others listed on our Lot list, with more to come.”
“We are delighted vendors are entrusting their pride and joy to us. We do well with this type of car and to have this selection is a testament to what we can achieve,”
The Silver Cloud was the ultimate in luxury and this 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 1 is a really lovely car presented in two-tone colours, with a Walnut interior and leather seats. With just four owners, the current one for 15 years, it was subject to restoration a while back and included some sympathetic upgrades which included electric windows. Most Silver Clouds were finished in a two-tone colour scheme which only increased their elegance and in Pacific Green over Velvet Green this is a lovely looking car. Estimated at £20,000 to £25,000 it has been regularly maintained and comes with a substantial history file covering the last 25 years.
Some forty years later came the Silver Seraph, a car that was hand-built at the Rolls-Royce Crewe factory and when new cost £155,000. CCA have two Seraphs for sale, one from 1999 and the other from 2000. The 1999 car has just 21,000 miles on the clock from three owners and comes with a good service history, the most recent with P & A Wood. This is a rare and very low mileage car for a fraction of its original price at an estimated £35,000 to £40,000. Finished in Amethyst over Cotswold hide with Burr Elm veneers and picnic tables, it is powered by the V12 BMW engine capable of 140mph.
The Bentley Turbo RT was the last and the most expensive of the Turbo Rs with a 6.75-litre V8 engine powering it to 150mph. The RT was distinguished by the mesh grille and colour-coded bumpers. CCA are offering this 1997 Turbo RT LWB, one of 252 made and cost over £132,000 when new. This car scores very highly on the condition report, with 38,000 miles, a comprehensive history and lots of features including cameras all round. At an estimated £26,000 to £30,000 this is a glorious car again for a fraction of the cost new and will effortlessly power you around the country in style and comfort.
We now move to the Bentley Continental GT, the first car released under VW ownership. When launched, it gained great popularity among the rich and famous and now for an estimated £16,000 to £20,000, it could be you with this 2006 Continental GT sitting on your drive. This particular Dark Sapphire blue Metallic Bentley has had just two keepers, the current for 11 years and covered 57,224 miles. It is in lovely condition with a Magnolia hide interior and comes with a comprehensive history file.
Gary commented further: “The cars we have highlighted are just a few of what’s on offer. To have a Silver Cloud I and a Silver Cloud II is lovely. We have estimated the Cloud II at £18,000 to £20,000 however it is on offer at No Reserve. What an opportunity.”
“The Seraphs, again two wonderful cars, only a year apart but it is the mileage that differs, meaning you can still secure the 2000 car for an estimated £10,000 to £12,000.”
Viewing takes place on the 27th March between 10am and 5.30pm with the auction getting underway on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th from 12pm.
